How to Paint Kindness Rocks

I actually created a post that walks you through the best steps for painting rocks 


Two FUN Kindness Rock Ideas

Here are two ways to make darling kind rocks.  The first way is a little bit more difficult than than the second because it involves more detail with the paintbrush.  However, it is prettttttty easy peasy and I believe in you!  You can do it.

To create the rocks you will need the following supplies:

How to make these rocks:

  1. Paint the rocks in solid bright colors and let them dry.
  2. Add a white center to one side and let dry.
  3. Add a black outline with your marker and a word in the center of the white!

Ta Da!
